There are so many wraps out there - some more well known than others. I had a baby in August and I was not sure if I would enjoy wearing a wrap, but I was given this one (a brand I had never heard of before), so I thought I would try it.
It ties up just the same as any wrap, so once you have figured one out, you have figured them all out. I love the fact that this particular one has the added feature of a pocket in the front (something that I have yet to see with other wraps you can buy). The pocket is deep and sturdy so I have been able to use it for my keys and cell phone if I am off for a walk with the dog or to the mailbox, so I don't have to bring my purse or any bag with me. Also useful for going shopping if you don't want to have to dig around the diaper bag for a card or money or whatever else. The fabric is also thick and stretchy so it will keep little one a little warmer in the fall. The thing I also like about the wrap in general is being able to feed baby easily on the go. It probably comes with babywearing in general, but little one is much less fussy when she is in the wrap while out shopping.
While it is nice that the material is nice and thick for winter, fall and spring it may not be breathable or thin enough for summer (re: too hot to use when the temperature is hot). As with other wraps it can be tricky to figure it out and may take a few attempts before being able to use it. It also takes longer to put little one in than just grabbing the infant seat and going. I have found that having the wrap on before leaving the house helps so that when you get to your destination you are ready to go. It is also a little pricier than the other wraps ($10-30 more than Boba and Moby).
If you are thinking about getting a wrap or love using wraps I definitely recommend getting this one because of the convenience added feature of the front pocket. It is well-made and a Canadian-based country.
I received this as a gift when my son was born. It is A LOT of fabric to wrap around and can be tricky at first (though the more you do it, the easier it is). My biggest issue was not being able to use it during summer since with all that fabric both the baby and I would just get too warm. On the bright side, it feels more snug then other clip-type carriers because you can adjust how tightly you wear the baby so they feel more secure against you (i.e. when leaning over, etc.). It's not a bad product but I think there are better carriers out there.
I can't figure out the instructions on how to put this altogether. By the time i get the wrap together, i'm frustrated, l.o. is frustrated and doesn't want to get in. I used it twice and bought another carrier.
I bought this wrap for my first baby 4 years ago. I used it ALL day, I would just strap him to me and get everything done with two hands!!. He loved to sleep in it and it was comfortable enough for me to wear all the time. When one of my girlfriends got pregnant she borrowed it for her baby and loved just as much as I did. It was now gone through 2 of my own kids and 3 of my friends kids and it doesn't look any worse for the wear. This is by far the best baby product I have ever bought
